Postoperative Management
« on: October 06, 2009, 10:49:01 AM »
I bill for an OB/GYN physician.  She performed a hysterectomy on a pt and 5 days after the pt had the operation, she developed a pelvic abscess and was readmitted to the hospital.  My doc saw her the days she was in the hospital.  Can I bill for those visits or do they fall under the postoperative global period?

Thanks  ;D

If the pelvic abscess is unrelated to the hysterectomy you can bill for the visits using the 24 modifier.
